MAD ABOUT YOU: Andi gives the Bachelor several pieces of her mind.

Holy crap -- they're going to Andi's date next? I was sure they were going to drag that shiz out until the final act. But here she is, resplendent in a red sundress, embracing her tank-topped Bachelor under the St. Lucian sun. They stroll through a village hand in hand, and make God-awful "music" with the world's most annoying instrument, the steel drum. (Don't believe me? Try being trapped on a crowded subway platform with this guy.) Next Juan Pablo peer pressures some kids at the Dennery Seafood Fiesta into drinking some free juice -- Boys! Didn't your mother ever tell you never to take citrus products from strangers? -- and before you know it, he and Andi and the kids are all playing a pick-up game of soccer in the sand.

If that's not picturesque enough for you, Juan Pabs then drives Andi to the jungle for a waterside picnic at Latille Falls. Over a snack of fresh fruit, the Bachelor fills Andi in on his "may I have your blessing" conversation with her father, Hy, during the hometown date. "Your dad gave me an answer that was pretty great... 'Let's say your daughter's going out with a GUY that has two other women. Would you tell him it's okay? I think we'll wait until the end -- and if it happens, you give me a call.'" Props to the Bachelor for realizing how awesome Hy's response really was..... but I think we all know Hy's never going to get that call from Juan Pablo. (Thanks, overzealous Team Bachelor promos team!)

Over an outdoor couch dinner, Juan Pablo plans to grill Andi about a statement she made on a previous date. "Last week in Atlanta, Andi told me that she badly wanted to fall in love," he tells us. "Nothing that is forced will work. So I want to see how she feels now." The ADA tells the Bachelor that there's a difference between "wanting it badly" and "forcing it" -- fair enough -- and then returns the volley with a question for him: Does Juan Pablo think Andi would be a good mother? "My honest answer is, I don't know," he says, perhaps a bit too honestly. "That's why I have an overnight tonight with you -- so we can talk about a lot of things." So what are you waiting for, folks? Get thee to the Fantasy Suite! Andi, for one, is ready: "Just feeling this happy and excited and fortunate, like, I couldn't even imagine this in my wildest dreams." They start making out on the couch, and we fade to black...

Morning dawns on Jade Mountain resort, and Juan Pablo is feeling good. "Waking up this morning, I'm so happy about Andi," he says. "We had a great night together. We freakin' talked and laughed for hours. Hours. Like, HOURS... Andi could be the one." Interesting. Counselor, would you like to make a rebuttal? "Waking up this morning, I could not wait to get out of the Fantasy Suite," says Andi grimly, as we watch her stroll down a lonely road in a black sundress of mourning. "The Fantasy Suite turned into a nightmare. I saw a side to him that I didn't really like, and the whole night was just a disaster."

NEXT: And Andi's definition of "disaster" is...
